BRUNO WALTER: MUSIC BY THREE SLAVIC MASTERS
"Bruno Walter's conducting was a combination of lyrical phrasing, flowing melodic line and precise dramatic emphases. Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 demonstrates each of these qualities. Tchaikovsky's Romeo & Juliet overture also finds Walter in fine fettle. Centrally come two Smetana favourites, both full of glorious Walter touches."
